What’s the tee?

Three T-shirts that’ll see you through winter

When it comes to T-shirts, you can never have too many. Whether you’re a crew neck proponent, prefer the sophistication of a polo or want to say it with your chest and a bold graphic, season after season, you’re bound to have tees on rotation. For AW18, we’ve picked out three styles that won’t only see you through the cold and be the foundation for your on-point layered looks, but are ideal for keeping forever too.

The long-sleeve tee

What makes it so special?

Originally a staple for skaters and angsty teens in the early 2000s, long-sleeve T-shirts (with a mandatory logo across the front) are an unexpected option for pulling together your grown-up off-duty look. The extra coverage keeps you warmer and one in a neutral colour will layer well under pretty much anything.

What can I wear it with?

While the weather isn’t too chilly, throw on a blue denim jacket and slip into your favourite black skinnies and sneakers. When it’s really cold, layer with an overshirt, denim jacket and a parka.

The long-sleeve polo

What makes it so special?

Classic men and dandies aren’t left out of the T-shirt gang this season thanks to this rendition of the iconic style. With clip buttons, standard collar and a sleek, minimal look, it’s the perfect option for formal occasions and the office. Beat that, dress code.

What can I wear it with?

Anything smart-looking will do – from your favourite biker jacket to a double-breasted peacoat. Complete the look with rolled-up chinos and Chelsea boots.

The plain crew neck tee

What makes it so special?

You won’t find a top more versatile. Either on its own or worn underneath something else, the crew neck tee is one of the fundamental building blocks everyone needs in their wardrobe, regardless of your aesthetic, budget or the weather outside.

What can I wear it with?

Check shirts, coach jackets, truckers, bombers, puffers – pretty much everything. Again, neutral colours will give you more mileage and can be smartened up or dressed down. Consider this one of your daily essentials.
